What is Automatic Emergency Braking and how does it help?

Automatic Emergency Braking can save your life or reduce injuries and damage in an emergency situation. This useful feature utilizes technology such as radar, sensors, and cameras to monitor the space around your car and detect the risk of a collision. The system can then provide a warning to alert the driver, and if the driver neglects to brake, the system will apply the brake to prevent or lessen the severity of a collision. Famous makers such as Ford, Toyota, Audi, Volkswagen and General Motors already have this option on high end models.

Key Takeaways:

  • There have been so many changes to our vehicles over the last few years that we really need to keep up-to-date with these changes each time we purchase or lease a new vehicle.
  • The AEB systems use sensors, radar, laser or cameras at the front of the vehicle to monitor for risk and detect potential collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians or hazards.
  • AEB systems may vary, most systems provide some type of a warning to alert the driver, whether it’s audible or flashing light to the driver.
